In Support of a MOA

By Barbara Taormina esidents who have been following the candidates and campaigns in this year’s city election have been keeping an eye on the race for the Ward 3 City Council seat. Incumbent John Matheson’s decision to run for mayor rather than seeking another term on the council left a wide-open door for candidates Amanda Linehan and Julianne Orsino, two young women who are both poised to bring new voices and perspectives to the City Council. Both candidates have lengthy resumes that include their services on city committees and boards. And both have

According to Malden’s Director of Public Health Chris Webb, this is prime time for local rats and raccoons to feast and mate, and to avoid playing host to the local rodent bacchanal, it’s a good idea to harvest and clean up gardens and anything still left on the ground from backyard fruit trees. Webb was at this week’s City Council meeting to talk about rats and what the city is doing to control them. “Over the past three years [rodent control] has been a constant function of our department,� said Webb, adding that before 2016, rats weren’t much of an issue. The city has a contract with General Environmental Services for pest control for public buildings and parks. Webb said the bike path has been a focal point of rodent control since it’s heavily traveled and connects so much of the city.

A lot of work has also been done according to Environmental Protection Agency guidelines around schools, which, except for the parking lot at Linden, haven’t been a serious problem. Webb said that recently there have been complaints about rats along the train tracks, and the city is now working with the MBTA to monitor activity and traps set along the rail bed from Medford Street to McDonald Stadium. Over the past three years, the Health Department has ďŹ elded 103 calls about rats and another 30 to 40 complaints have been posted on the city’s See, Click, Fix website. “The locations are always in a densely populated area,â€? said Webb, adding that sometimes rats are seen near but not abutting construction sites. Other complaints seem to be following the city’s road repair projects.

Webb said his department is now working with the Engineering Department to monitor rodent activity which he said may increase when roads, sidewalks and drainage pipes are fully opened during reconstruction. “I’ve been receiving complaints where I’ve never received before in Ward 7,�said City Councillor Neal Anderson, who invited Webb to speak at the City Council meeting in hopes of getting some information out to the community. “Do we have more rats now, or are they just surfacing more and becoming more of a nuisance?� asked Anderson. “Both,� answered Webb. “We have more and they’re feeding better, breeding better and having bigger litters.� Webb and several councillors stressed it’s important for residents to keep waste and recycling in cov-

ered barrels and containers to cut down on the available food supply. Also, feeding pets outdoors and leaving bread and seed for birds can invite trouble. Ward 2 Councillor Paul Condon wondered why the MBTA, which collects millions of dollars in annual payments from the city, isn’t taking more responsibility for rats living along the tracks. Webb said the MBTA monitors their traps, but larger extermination efforts are diďŹƒcult because rats don’t travel in groups and it’s diďŹƒcult to ďŹ nd their nests. “We’ll probably see an uptick in the couple of months,â€? said Webb, adding that the cold weather will bring rats out to search for food and to mate. He advised any residents who are concerned about rodents damaging their property to contact an exterminator.

~ Guest Commentary ~

MATV announces Malden Overcoming Addiction: upcoming political Our members and mission forum and debate M T alden Overcoming Addiction (MOA) is a 501c3 nonprofit. Our mission is“to connect the community with addiction support and recovery services, remove the stigma of addiction, and fight to eliminate overdose fatalities in Malden and surrounding communities.” Since registering with the State of Massachusetts on November 14, 2016, we have built a community of approximately 100 members who are active in supporting our mission. MOA is completely board run, and is not in any way affiliated with the City of Malden or any other public or private entity. Our Board of Directors for 2019 consists of: Paul Hammersley – President Daniel Ko – Vice President/Director Domenic DiSario – Treasurer Justin Gottlieb – Secretary Dana Brown – Board Member Dawn Zanazzo – Board Member MOA is funded exclusively through donations of time and money. With the help of grants from The Cummings Foundation, The Bayrd Foundation, Malden's Junior Aid Association, Rize Massachusetts, and the Picolo Foundation, as well as contributions large and small, we have built this organization from the ground up. One of our proudest accomplishments is the establishment of our Transitional Living Scholarship Program, which is open to Malden residents working to maintain their recovery. This program has allowed us to place 34 people into sober living over the course of 2 years. As of September 17, 2019, 15 of those people remain substance-free to this day, a 44% success rate. Of the 19 people who relapsed, 10 have gone back into recovery since this data was collected. We know that recovery is an ongoing process. With our current data showing an almost doubled rate of sustained recovery, we are so motivated to continue expanding our outreach. Part of why we feel we have been successful thus far is due to our work in bridging the gap from treatment to the “real world.” This approach is a critical factor in the substance use recovery continuum of care. As a result, our organization has focused much of its efforts and funding towards addressing this urgent need. At MOA, we have worked diligently over the last four years. We want to stop the stigma everywhere, a vital part of our mission, which is why we have: • A Recovery Coach Academy, in partnership with CCAR, that has graduated 82 Recovery Coaches who mentor newly recovered people and participate in the Malden Recovery Court Program.

• A Malden Access Television show discussing addiction and recovery, including things like Narcan training and family support resources. • Stop the Stigma Day, an educational day that has reached over 7500 Malden students to educate them about addiction, stigma, and recovery. Stop the Stigma Day also includes a social media component that has helped us spread our mission to over half a million people across the globe. • Hidden in Plain Sight, an educational event that helps parents spot the signs of at-risk behavior using an interactive display of a teenager’s bedroom. • Malden Overcomes Day, a funfilled day with informational resources about addiction that focuses on community building and family-friendly activities. • Informational film screenings to build insight, education, and awareness about addiction and recovery in the community. • MOA’s Memorial Candlelight Vigil, an annual event where community members gather at Malden High School to remember those we have lost, and allow families who have lost loved ones to share their stories and pain, as well as treasure the memories of our loved ones. • Fundraising events to support our scholarship and recovery coach programs, such as The Together We Can Comedy Night and MOA Rocks Addiction. • Celebrate Sober, Our free New Years Eve Party, which allows those looking to ring in the New Year substance-free, a safe and supportive place to celebrate. While recent news about a possible recovery center in Malden has raised voices of concern, it has also raised voices of hope for

those touched by addiction. Malden Overcoming Addiction has been working hard at bridging the gaps in addiction treatment. Our organization has been looking to bring a state funded, evidence-based peer to peer recovery center to Malden with the intention of helping to further support our friends and neighbors as they navigate their life in recovery. This initiative is still in the talking stages and community input will be part of the process if this moves forward. The center would be only for those folks already in recovery from their addiction. The center would not offer any medication or clinical treatment, just resources, education, support and guidance to help folks maintain their recovery. We understand the hesitation we may be met with. However, it is the mission of our organization to stand strong and continue to help those who are struggling and to help build a stronger community. We must work to fight this battle together. If we are still losing Malden residents to this disease, then we clearly need to do more to help.

he School Committee Candidates Forum will be held on Thursday, October 17 from 6-8 p.m. at the First Parish Church (2 Elm St.). A light complimentary dinner will be provided. The event hosts: Greater Malden Asian American Community Coalition, Asian Community Development Corporation, APIs CAN!, Massachusetts Senior Action Council, the Chinese Progressive Association, the Chinese Culture Connection and MATV. Mandarin to English translation will be provided. The second Mayoral Debate between incumbent Mayor Gary Christenson and Ward 3 Councillor John Matheson will be held on Thursday, October 24 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at The John & Christina Markey Senior Community Center (7 Washington St.). The debate will be hosted by MATV freelance staffer Sharon Fillyaw; voters will be able to send in questions to both local news-

papers beforehand and during the night of the debate. Questions will be screened and summarized. (More info at a later date.) Residents are invited to attend any of the above events in person. The Mayoral Debate will be carried live on MATV’s Government Access Channel and Educational Access Channel (Comcast channels 15 & 22, Verizon channels 24 & 26). The events will also be livestreamed on our City Stream ( and on YouTube Live (maldenaccesssmatv). In addition, residents will have a chance to “meet” the candidates through short videos recorded at the MATV studio. All the candidates running in the local election have been offered the opportunity to record these “spots” to highlight their qualifications, background and ideas. Once recorded, these videos will be shown on the cable channels, social media and the MATV website.

MVRCS Supt. responds to State Rep’s proposed legislation on discrimination Dear Editor: I am writing in response to the article titled, “State Rep. Ultrino files legislation to prohibit discrimination based on hairstyles,” published in The Malden Advocate on October 4, 2019. In the article, State Representative Steven Ultrino announced his sponsorship of a“hair legislation bill,”asserting that he was driven to action by the realization that “…there was hate in the community based on culture and hairstyle…” It is clear that Rep. Ultrino, who attended private Catholic schools for the entirety of his student life and who has never worked as a teacher or administrator in a public-school environment, has set his sights squarely on MVRCS as an institution that emanates hate. This suggestion is patently and demonstrably false, and unbecoming of a legislator. MVRCS is a school that serves Malden and five surrounding communities. The school

was founded to provide parents an alternative choice to the general public-school systems, and its mission is to ensure that all children, regardless of race, are provided with equal educational opportunities. More than half of our students are of color, constituting a larger minority representation than would be expected based on the racial composition of the school’s sending districts. Year after year, while our student attrition rate is substantially lower than those of the communities we serve, our test scores are consistently higher, particularly for children of color. Clearly, with a 2,000-student waitlist, there is a tremendous appetite among Malden parents, of all races, for gaining access to MVRCS’s program. MVRCS’s mission emphasizes structure, discipline, and order. It celebrates human commonality, faculties of the mind, and character, rather than appearance and material possessions. The school’s approach features a simple, consistently implemented dress code, which is an important ingredient in creating an atmosphere that is conducive to student learning. Each year, our handbook, which includes the dress code, is reviewed and acknowledged via a compact that is signed by all students and parents. Although it was featured less prominently, I would like to direct your readers’ attention to another article published on October 4, one that is far more representative of the school’s sustained track record of student success. Running under the headline, “Nearly 10 percent of MVRCS graduating class attains National Merit or Commended Student distinction,” this article recognizes and celebrates seven of the 82 members of our graduating class. Five of these seven seniors happen to be people of color. One of the commended students, a young woman who happens to be African American, is the younger sister of a 2014 MVRCS graduate who grew up in Malden, attended Harvard University, and is now completing her second year in Oxford, England, as a Rhodes Scholar. While these accomplishments are truly exceptional, they are not uncommon at MVRCS. They are indicative of the results our teachers – and our school – consistently produces.

Rep. Ultrino is to be admonished for publicly undermining a school that, as per its charter and philosophical underpinnings, is founded on principles that are diametrically opposed to hate and division. Furthermore, it is reprehensible that, rather than engaging a member of the school’s leadership team in a constructive dialogue (Rep. Ultrino sees some of us regularly through mutual membership in Malden-based volunteer organizations), he opted to single out one administrator who, in serving in her capacity as dean of students, simply performed her duty in upholding the policies of the school. Having been a student and a one-year administrator in Catholic schools with similar policies, Rep. Ultrino should have a thorough understanding of the value and benefits of a dress code within a school community. As a former Malden School Committee member, he should also recognize the importance of finding common ground, across a diverse student body, in driving student academic achievement. There is important work to do for our schools in Malden. In five years, Rep. Ultrino has failed to deliver meaningful reform in education funding for our community, as evidenced by state aid to the city increasing at a per-pupil rate that is below inflation. During the same time period, our wealthy neighbor Winchester’s per-pupil state aid increased by double the inflation rate. Perhaps Rep. Ultrino might be more effective if he spent his time focusing on socioeconomic equity, which would be meaningful to all Malden children. Rep. Ultrino’s insistence on perpetuating a misrepresentation of MVRCS is little more than political opportunism. I urge him, moving forward, to train his attention away from maligning a well-respected and highly-ranked school – and the dedicated staff members within it – that has had such a transformative impact on its students and the educational landscape in Malden and beyond. Sincerely, Alexander J. Dan Director/Superintendent Mystic Valley Regional Charter School Malden Resident

It’s that sort of thinking that has made the Leadership Program the foundational base from which Malden Catholic’s Girls Division was conceived and built. While MC has an illustrious 87year history of boys’ education, the introduction of the Girls Division has surpassed the school’s wildest expectations. With 156 girls across the ďŹ rst two classes, there is a feeling that the Leadership Program and Malden Catholic’s co-divisional structure are creating a unique dierentiation that is unseen in Massachusetts. O’Brien’s experiences aren’t unique. Methuen’s Nicole Autilio has already seen the conďŹ dence of her daughter, Christina, improve signiďŹ cantly as well.“She is not afraid to express herself and knows her voice is valued. Her relationships are stronger; she works better in groups and has even learned to become more tolerant of other people’s views,â€? Autilio said. This wasn’t by accident. Lisa Cenca, the Principal of the Girls Division, believes that if girls had an education based on leadership then superior academic results would follow. In the conceptual phase of the school, she believed in the idea so fully that she looked at numerous schools across the country to ďŹ nd a model that MC could emulate when it started its Girls Division in 2018. However, she could not ďŹ nd what she was looking for. “I researched so many amazing schools for girls across the country, but I couldn’t ďŹ nd a single leadership-based school, so I decided we could make one,â€? Cenca said. With her leadership idea in tow, Cenca headed for the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools (NCGS) Conference in Washington, D.C., to ďŹ nd women she could partner with on Malden Catholic’s idea. After hearing Julie Carrier, a nationally recognized girls’ leadership coach and a confidence coach on MTV’s Emmy award-winning show for teens – MADE – Cenca decided that she had to partner with Carrier. Carrier was immediately drawn

to the idea of basing a girls’ school around leadership.“Many schools have leadership training for boys, but no one had bothered to make one for girls, so we decided to be the ďŹ rst,â€? Carrier said. In thinking about a curriculum, Carrier, Cenca and her colleagues within the MC community wanted to develop a four-year course where girls could start with core leadership principles before developing their own yearlong research-based project their senior year. For example, during the studentsâ€™ďŹ rst year, they will develop their public speaking skills, learn the foundations of building and leading eective teams and develop awareness of their personal leadership character strengths. During the second year, the program becomes even more ambitious as girls work in small groups on developing the skills needed to give their own TED talks, the powerful short speaking program with millions of views on YouTube. Just like the real TED talks, the students plan to showcase each of their talks on YouTube. Malden Catholic’s Leadership Program has attracted the attention of some of the foremost leaders of women’s leadership in the country. Frances Hesselbein – the former CEO of the Girl Scouts and a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom – signed up to be part of the Leadership Course Advisory Council. Following Hesselbein was Dr. Carol Kauman, the Founder and Executive Director of the Institute of Coaching at Harvard Medical School, and Dr. Diane Ryan, the Former Deputy Head of the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Leadership at West Point. Quarterly, this illustrious group assesses the curriculum. Along with the attention of some of the country’s foremost experts on women’s leadership, the program has also attracted the attention of the National Conference for Girls – where Cenca and Carrier recently addressed a room of 300+ people about Malden Catholic’s program. The MC students are the direct

I have to remind them that they do have to go home at some point,” Cenca said. The Leadership Program and academic rigor have helped pro-

beneficiaries of this brainpower. Hannah Burton, of Woburn, who is currently a sophomore on the cross-country team, an avid choir singer and a member of the Drama Club, says the Leadership Program has already made a difference in her life. “It challenges my way of thinking. Where normally I would say something might not be possible, the program has helped me say that I should pursue my dreams and passions,” Burton said. Fellow sophomore Elena Chronopoulos, of Somerville, who is also on the cross-country team and in the STEM Club, says Malden Catholic’s Leadership Program has dramatically increased

her self-confidence.“I’ve become much more outgoing, and now I feel like there’s no problem going up to new people and introducing myself. I was able to make new best friends because of the Leadership Program,”Chronopoulos said. Cenca is quick to acknowledge that her leadership teachers at MC, Deirdre Foley and Stacie Ferrera, are the real heroes as they implement the program each day. She is also quick to acknowledge that Malden Catholic’s Girls Division asks a lot from its students. Each girl is required to participate in clubs and athletics and attend school events. Even with the rigorous aca-

pel the school so much that it has had to go to a waiting list for potential students. Malden Catholic’s Headmaster, John Thornburg, stated that leadership is one of the pillars that he wants to model the school. “The Girls Division has done a great job of launching an innovative Leadership Program,”Thornburg said. Citing Malden Catholic’s long and storied history of producing

male leaders, such as Nobel prize winner Eugene Fama, U.S. Senators, Ambassadors and numerous corporate leaders, Thornburg believes that a school-wide Leadership Program will be a differentiating factor for the school in the coming years. “We have to build on our storied history of leadership in a way that propels our students to be the leaders of tomorrow,” he said.

Cleaning company owner pleads guilty, sentenced to jail for insurance fraud W



OBURN – The owner of a Malden-based cleaning company pleaded guilty and was sentenced to jail in connection with an insurance fraud scheme that involved worker misclassiďŹ cation, Attorney General Maura Healey announced recently. Marcello Pompa, 41, of Saugus, pleaded guilty on Monday to Workers’Compensation Insurance Fraud (ďŹ ve counts) and Larceny Over $250

(ďŹ ve counts). He was sentenced by Judge Laurence Pierce to one year in a House of Correction with six months to be served, with the remaining balance suspended for two years. He was also ordered to not work on municipal contracts or participate in the municipal bidding process for two years, and to pay $74,000 in restitution. “Worker misclassiďŹ cation is a serious issue that cheats our state out of needed resources,â€? said AG Healey. “Employers need to follow the law and pay their fair share.â€? “The IFB’s Workers’ Compensation Unit vigorously pursues premium evasion cases because it places a ďŹ nancial drain on the system and creates an unfair playing ďŹ eld for dishonest businesses,â€? said Anthony DiPaolo, Chief of Investigations at the Massachusetts Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB). “This indictment shows the commitment by the IFB and AG Healey’s oďŹƒce to combat this type of fraud.â€? The AG’s OďŹƒce alleged that between 2010 and 2016, Pompa falsely claimed that he used three subcontractors through his company, M&M Cleaning, Inc. (M&M), in order to lower his workers’compensation insurance premiums and conceal more than $2.8 million in M&M’s

payroll. Through this scheme, the AG’s OďŹƒce alleged that M&M evaded paying more than $74,000 in workers’ compensation insurance premiums. As a result of this alleged intentional misclassification, Pompa was able to win multiple contracts, including municipal contracts throughout Massachusetts, by offering a substantially lower price for cleaning services than his competitors during the bidding process. Pompa was indicted in October 2018. Misclassification is an increasingly common way for employers to avoid their legal obligations to employees and to unfairly compete in the marketplace. Employers that misclassify their workers avoid paying their fair share of unemployment insurance, payroll taxes and workers’compensation contributions. MisclassiďŹ cation not only puts at risk a much-needed safety net for workers injured on the job, but also raises costs for other employers. This case was prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Geoff Wood with assistance from Michelle Silva, both of AG Healey’s Insurance and Unemployment Fraud Unit and from investigators at the IFB.

City Council resolution is lost in translation Start Your Weekend at the Marina Dance Party!

By Barbara Taormina

Friday, October 11 at 9 PM Back By Popular Demand!

ast month, the City Council unanimously voted in favor of a resolution to provide real-time translation of city meetings to Malden’s Asian residents. But when members of the Citizens Engagement Committee followed up with a meeting to discuss a plan to offer translation services, they ran into technological and financial roadblocks. According to the resolution sponsored by Councillors Debbie DeMaria and David Camell, access to information is hampered by language barriers for roughly 25 to 30 percent Malden’s population who described themselves as Asian. The resolution goes on to say that the health and well-being of the city is enhanced when its government reflects population segments, and timely access to information may increase interest, involvement and leadership of all ages, talent and socioeconomic levels. “This is very much a community-grown resolve,” said DeMaria, who wondered how

Asian residents who are provided ballots in Chinese can cast informed votes when municipal government meetings are conducted exclusively in English. Councillors and some of the community’s most involved residents agreed and supported the resolution. Most people left the City Council meeting feeling the city had taken a major step from giving lip service to diversity to promoting authentic inclusion. But Information Technology Director Anthony Rodrigues met with the Citizens Engagement Committee a week later and explained that the goal set out in the resolution is not realistic. “Doing translations in real time would be difficult and very cost prohibitive,”said Rodrigues. Although the new City Hall will be equipped with all types of technology that will allow municipal meetings to be streamed and beamed wherever Malden citizens may roam, Rodrigues said the technology for simultaneous translation “isn’t quite there yet.” And apps and programs that promise translations tend to be clumsy, not entirely accurate and not suitable for official government business. Rodriques said the city works with Baystate Interpreters to provide different translation services, and translators have

been provided to residents who have requested them for School Committee meetings. But that service costs $135 per hour per language. Providing the type of service that the council envisioned would take a significant investment. Ward 7 Councillor Neal Anderson suggested that some city employees might be willing to take on an added responsibility of providing translations for additional pay. And DeMaria mentioned that in Somerville there are three city employees who provide translation services in addition to their regular jobs. The committee agreed to continue exploring translation options. They plan to provide written notices to the Asian community explaining that Baystate Interpreters can provide real-time translations of meetings when requested. The response to those notices will help gauge the level of interest in those services. They also plan to check the budget line item for translation services and to assess the accuracy of Google’s translator app. DeMaria said she would also reach out to the Secretary of State’s office to discuss the issue. DeMaria said Malden is required to provide ballots in Chinese to residents who request them. “Maybe they can help us with the cost of translations,”she said.

Massachusetts Senate unanimously passes Student Opportunity Act BOSTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; On October 3, the Massachusetts Senate voted (390) to pass the Student Opportunity Act, an unprecedented $1.5 billion new investment in Massachusetts K-12 public education. This legislation ensures public schools have adequate resources to provide high-quality education to students across the state, regardless of zip code or income level. Assuming inďŹ&#x201A;ation, over time the bill could provide an estimated $2.2 billion. State Senator Jason Lewis has long advocated for adequate and equitable funding for our public schools, and as Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Education, led the eďŹ&#x20AC;orts this year to draft the Student Opportunity Act. The Student Opportunity Act signiďŹ cantly helps school districts that serve high concentrations of low-income students. At the same time, school districts across the Commonwealth will beneďŹ t from updates to the existing funding formula, along with increased state investment in other vital education aid programs, such as transportation, school construction and

renovation and special education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Access to a high-quality public education is a fundamental right for every child, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the Student Opportunity Act will make an unprecedented $1.5 billion investment in our public schools, ensuring that school districts across the Commonwealth have adequate and equitable resources to provide all students, especially those facing adversity, with a high-quality public education,â&#x20AC;? said Lewis.â&#x20AC;&#x153;The passage of the Student Opportunity Act today marks a bold step into the 21st century for our public schools in Massachusetts and for all future generations of students.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the passage of the Student Opportunity Act, the Senate is reaďŹ&#x192;rming its commitment to the idea that providing a quality public education is not a luxury â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it is both our greatest responsibility and our greatest opportunity as a state,â&#x20AC;?said Senate President Karen Spilka. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am proud of the diligent and thoughtful work done

n commemoration of Fire Prevention Week, the Malden Fire and Police Departments recently held their Second Annual Public Safety Day at Linden Park and School. Fire Prevention Week is a time when all are encouraged to recognize the dangers that can occur in the places we feel the safest. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme is â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice your Escape!â&#x20AC;? The theme works to educate everyone about the actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe. Also sponsoring the event were Cataldo Ambulance, Malden Housing Authority, Malden Redevelopment Authority, Malden Board of Health, Malden DPW, Massachusetts State Police, Ward 8 Councillor Jadeane Sica, Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora, Councillor-at-Large Steve Winslow, Junior Aid Association of Malden, Malden FireďŹ ghters Local 902, Girl Scouts, Piantedosi Baking Co., Chelsea Police Department, Town Line Ten Pin, Hot Dog Joe, Maxima Auto Sales and Stop & Shop. Families and residents came out in large numbers to the free

event for fun and interactive ways to learn more about safety. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;touch a truckâ&#x20AC;? events were a great success, and children enjoyed learning about and climbing on ďŹ re engines and ladders, police cars, an ambulance and DPW trucks. The State Police held an arson dog demonstration to standing-room-only crowds. Children also enjoyed an obstacle course and smoke house demonstrations as well as safety-themed bounce houses, pumpkin decorating, crafts, face painting and games. A DJ kept everyone moving, and guests enjoyed pizza, hot dogs, popcorn and ice cream and received goody bags, safety literature and small trees to plant. Fire Prevention Week is observed every October in remembrance of the Great Chicago Fire that began on October 8, 1871, and killed more than 250 people, along with destroying more than 17,400 structures across 2,000 acres. In 1911, 40 years after the ďŹ re, the Fire Marshals Association determined that the anniversary of this ďŹ re should be observed annually to generate awareness about ďŹ re prevention.

ELECTION | FROM PAGE 1 nity leaders. Orsino, who chairs the Community Preservation Committee, has degrees in economics and environmental studies as well as 20 years of experience as a senior project manager for Oracle, a global software and technology company. Orsino served on the Complete Streets Task Force, has organized neighborhood cleanups and events and has rallied residents behind efforts to improve traffic and pedestrian safety. She currently works for the Chinese Cultural Connection in Malden. A former editor of the Malden Observer, Linehan has a degree in journalism and currently serves as the communications director at the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC). A member of the board of directors of the Malden Redevelopment Authority and the Asian Community Development Corporation, Linehan served on the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on Walkability and the Forestdale Community Church Board of Trustees. The role the next Ward 3 councillor will play in the redevelopment of the Malden Hospital site has generated citywide interest in the race. Orsino said the future of the hospital site was her primary motivation for running for the Ward 3 council seat. “I want to work with community groups and residents to make sure we don’t have a large apartment complex up there,” she said. She described the redevelopment plans recently presented by the Friends of Fellsmere Heights and Boston Architectural College as a great community vision that preserves open space and allows for a “reasonably sized” residential development for seniors, who will be one of the groups most in need of affordable housing in the up-

coming years. Orsino feels adaptive reuse should be part of the discussion as plans and negotiations for the hospital site move forward.“We can look at whether we can reuse parts of the hospital building,” she said. Linehan said her position on Malden Hospital has evolved over the past couple of years. Initially, she supported the Fellsmere Housing Group’s proposal to build several hundred market-rate units on the site. She said at the time there was no financing plan to support a community-based redevelopment option, and if the private development were to move forward it would be important for the city to get as many benefits as possible from the project. “It’s a good thing we have a clean slate now,” she said, adding that she is glad MelroseWakefield Healthcare severed its relationship with the developer. Linehan said she has spent a lot of time with the Friends of Fellsmere Heights discussing their community-based vision for the site. Although she may ultimately support more residential development than the Friends hope to see, she said the city now has a chance to work toward a solution with some much-needed affordable housing mixed with community benefits, such as open space, playgrounds and walking paths. Linehan said the idea for her campaign for the Ward 3 City Council seat began two years ago when the city failed to pass an inclusionary zoning ordinance that would have required developers to offer 15 percent of a housing project’s units at affordable rates. Although Linehan said it’s too late to fix the flood of high-end housing in downtown Malden, she said the city should now act aggressively to promote affordable housing. And she has plenty of ideas on how to do that. “My career is

in workforce housing,” she said. In addition to inclusionary zoning, Linehan supports an affordable housing trust fund that could be used, in part, to purchase parcels that are targets in a speculative real estate market.

have on city schools, services and roads and transportation systems. “Malden needs leadership to stand up to state agencies looking to solve regional problems on the backs of Malden residents,” she wrote in an

JULIANNE ORSINO Ward 3 City Council Candidate

She supports the idea of a shortterm rental policy with an impact fee that could support an anti-displacement strategy. She also supports innovative housing solutions, such as co-housing and micro-units and allowing accessory dwelling units adjacent to owner-occupied homes. And she feels the city needs to examine zoning regulations on minimum lot sizes, setbacks, height restrictions and parking requirements that are roadblocks to new housing solutions. Linehan also feels the city needs to start working toward the goals outlined in MAPC’s Housing Needs Assessment, which predicts that the growth of the regional workforce will trigger a demand for 3,900 more units of housing in Malden by 2030, with affordable housing among the most pressing needs. Orsino has been critical of the MAPC’s analysis, which she said fails to include the hundreds of units already in the pipeline and does not address the impact that a spike in growth would

Op-Ed published in July. Orsino said that as chair of the Community Preservation Committee she has reached out to organizations involved in affordable housing projects to explore possible funding with community preservation dollars. In additional to inclusionary zoning, she supports extending deed restrictions that require property owners to rent units at affordable rates. She also feels the city needs to do more to tap into available housing grants and programs such as the Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) program that provides housing vouchers to homeless vets and their families. Both Linehan and Orsino have questions for the MBTA. Linehan would like to know why the transit authority is cutting bus routes and what prevents upgrades and improvements in service. Orsino wants an explanation about the MBTA’s use of an antiquated assessment formula that demands $4.1 million a year from Malden, while Quincy, which has subway, bus and commuter rail services for its

94,000 residents, pays $2.1 million.“How is that fair?”she asked. On environmental issues, the two candidates share some of the same views and support similar strategies. Both Orsino and Linehan favor outreach programs to help residents make energy efficiency upgrades to their homes. And they both agree more needs to be done to protect Malden’s tree inventory, with Orsino suggesting the city should have an arborist on a consulting basis to recommend which types of trees are right for different locations. “We have a lot of green space, but we don’t give it the attention it needs,” said Orsino, who feels the city should develop a stronger partnership with the state Department of Conservation and Recreation to better maintain Fellsmere Park. Linehan supports the city’s participation in the state’s Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness program, which would allow Malden to pursue grants to build resilience against the effects of climate change. Linehan and Orsino both have reservations about the city’s proposal for a new solid waste program, which was crafted partly as a response to trash hauler JRM’s demand for higher fees to cover disposal costs of Malden’s excessive amount of contaminated recycling. Linehan said the proposal to eliminate the blue plastic bags and provide each household with a 65-gallon trash toter and a 32-gallon recycling bin would create mobility problems for seniors and residents whose homes have a set of stairs descending to the sidewalk. And there’s also the problem of where to store such a tremendous trash barrel, she said.“People are passionate recyclers and there’s a concern that the big barrels would be incentivizing

ELECTION | FROM PAGE 14 people to move away from recycling,â&#x20AC;? Linehan said, adding that residents want a smaller barrel and bin program. Orsino said more and more municipalities are moving toward pay-as-you-throw programs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not recycling properly, I think we should address that issue,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we should hold oďŹ&#x20AC; before we get rid of pay-as-you-throw.â&#x20AC;? Both Orsino and Linehan said they would welcome the role ward councillors play in addressing constituentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns and complaints. They are both ready to plan the neighborhood Fourth of July celebration and excited about the chance to make sure a broken streetlight is replaced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my sweet spot,â&#x20AC;? said Orsino, who added that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always browsing through the posts on the See, Click, Fix website. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My background is in com-

munity service,â&#x20AC;? said Linehan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can hit the ground running with constituent service issues.â&#x20AC;? Both candidates said they would have regular oďŹ&#x192;ce hours, hold regular ward 3 neighborhood meetings and share information with residents through diďŹ&#x20AC;erent channels, including social media platforms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Listening is huge to me,â&#x20AC;? said Linehan, who hopes to bolster civic engagement, by pushing for childcare at city meetings and more translation and interpretation of city meetings and materials. Orsino plans to draw more residents into civic affairs by studying multiple languages â&#x20AC;&#x153;to communicate natively with residents.â&#x20AC;? She also plans to offer opportunities for people to get involved in issues however much they choose and to regularly seek input and feedback from residents on speciďŹ c topics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Residents are always coming up with interesting ideas, and there should be a way for them to bring up those ideas,â&#x20AC;?she said.

With no strings attached. COLLEGE CLOSURE (H 4099) House 153-0, approved and sent to the Senate a bill that would require colleges and universities to post ďŹ nancial information online in a publicly accessible fashion, undergo regular budgetary screening and alert state oďŹ&#x192;cials if they face imminent closure. All higher education institutions would be required to alert the Board of Higher Education if they have any liabilities that create a risk of â&#x20AC;&#x153;imminent closure.â&#x20AC;? That information

would remain private to allow struggling institutions to recoup without alarming the public. The measure also requires board members at every college and university to undergo regular ďŹ duciary and accreditation trainings. If the board determines that a school does in fact face closure, the school would be required to create a contingency plan with details outlining how students can complete their programs, how their records would be maintained and how deposits would be refunded. The board would impose a ďŹ ne of up to a $1,000 per day if it determines that an institution has failed to comply with this new law. The board would also have the power to suspend state funding to the institution or revoke degree-granting authority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year, the students at Mount Ida College, were surprised to learn that their college was closing without any previous notiďŹ cation,â&#x20AC;? said Rep. James Arciero (D-Westford). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fifteen-hundred students, including the daughter of one of my constituents had their well-planned academic lives turned on their heads. This legislation addresses that matter so that no other student will ever have to face a similar situation in the future.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This legislation supports and strengthens our higher education system and these vital engines of opportunity, and in so doing, protects the interests of students and families,â&#x20AC;? said Rep. Jeffrey Roy (D-Franklin), House Chair of the Higher Education Committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The financial screening and enhanced reporting provisions will help us keep Massachusetts at the top of the heap and avoid the signiďŹ cant negative consequences of


college closures for students, staďŹ&#x20AC; and host communities. The training provisions will strengthen the governance of these institutions and assist boards in exercising their ďŹ duciary responsibilities.â&#x20AC;? (A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesâ&#x20AC;? vote is for the bill.) Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes  $1.4 BILLION FOR EDUCATION (S 2350) Senate 39-0, approved and sent to the House the Student Opportunity Act that invests $1.5 billion, mostly in the form of Chapter 70 Aid for local school districts, in the state's public K-12 education system over the next seven years. The measure implements the recommendations of the Foundation Budget Review Commission which found the state was underfunding schools by more than $1 billion annually. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Access to a high-quality public education is a fundamental right for every child, and that's why the Student Opportunity Act will make an unprecedented $1.5 billion investment in our public schools, ensuring that school districts across the commonwealth have adequate and equitable resources to provide all students, especially those facing adversity, with a high-quality public education,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Jason Lewis (D-Winchester), the Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the most important obligations of state government is educating our young people,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Eric Lesser (D-Longmeadow). â&#x20AC;&#x153;This historic legislation will ensure every kid in our commonwealth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; regardless of zip code â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is given the opportunity to receive a top-tier education. It is long past time to give our kids the support they deserve.â&#x20AC;? "This has been a long time coming, as we all know,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett) said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is really a historic day in this chamber and that is not an overstatement by any means. We have been talking about making our kids a pri-

ority for many, many years â&#x20AC;Ś today, we are there." "We urge the House to pass the bill with the same speed so that after years of advocacy by our members and communities we can all reap the fruit of a more just funding system," said Massachusetts Teachers Association President Merrie Najimy. "All communities will gain from this bill, but the biggest winners are low-income students in our Gateway Cities â&#x20AC;&#x201D; many of whom are students of color â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and students in our high-poverty rural districts." (A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesâ&#x20AC;? vote is for the bill.) Sen. Jason Lewis Ye s SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION FOR HOMELESS KIDS (S 2350) Senate 13-25, rejected an amendment that would require the state to reimburse cities and towns the cost, minus any federal funding the community receives, of providing transportation to students experiencing homelessness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This amendment would have only cost 0.01 percent [$16.2 million] of the cost of the bill and it was very unfortunate that this bipartisan amendment was not adopted,â&#x20AC;? said the amendmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sponsor Sen. Dean Tran (R-Fitchburg). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Homeless students should also have the right to beneďŹ t from this unprecedented school funding.â&#x20AC;? Amendment opponents said the bill is focused on implementing the recommendations of the Foundation Budget Review Commission. They argued that the Legislature does provide some reimbursement to cities and towns through the regular annual budget and that there is a commission working to address student transportation needs, including homeless transportation. (A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesâ&#x20AC;? vote is for the amendment. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Noâ&#x20AC;? vote is against it.) Sen. Jason Lewis No STUDENTS MUST MEET WITH GUIDANCE COUNSELOR (S 2350) Senate 6-32, rejected an amend-

ment that would require school districts to design plans to ensure that every enrolled high school student meets with a guidance counselor or school psychologist at least once a year. The amendment requires that each meeting allow enough time to discuss mental, emotional and physical wellbeing; college and career readiness; and academic success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our intern, Tori Milun of Norwell, originally brainstormed this idea and brought it to my attention,â&#x20AC;? said the amendmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s author Sen. Patrick Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor (R-Weymouth). â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think that this is a common-sense, proactive piece of legislation that benefits the mental, emotional and academic wellbeing of all students. There are so many resources that school counselors are prepared to oďŹ&#x20AC;er students, and it is the students who avoid guidance counselors who may need them the most.â&#x20AC;? Amendment opponents said the amendment is well-intentioned but it will put additional stress on an already stressed resource and may create an unfunded mandate. They noted the Legislature is already working on this issue outside of this legislation. (A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesâ&#x20AC;? vote is for the amendment. A â&#x20AC;&#x153;Noâ&#x20AC;? vote is against it.) Sen. Jason Lewis No PROP 2 ½ (S 2350) Senate 34-4, approved an amendment requiring the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to analyze the impact of Proposition 2½ on the ability of municipalities to make their required local contributions in the short-term and long-term and recommendations to mitigate the constraints of Proposition 2½. Prop 2½ allows communities to raise property taxes only 2.5 percent a year over the previous yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s levy. The limit can be overridden by a majority of voters. Amendment supporters said many cities and towns are willing to step up and to tax themselves more to pay for vital services but Proposition 2½ puts a cap on that. They said that once the levy limit is reached, towns have no ability to raise revenue to pay for services and have to start laying people oďŹ&#x20AC; and cutting services. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since the moment I began campaigning, I heard about the pressure that multiple municipalities in my district are under as a result of Prop. 2½ constraints,â&#x20AC;? said the amendmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sponsor Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton).â&#x20AC;&#x153;A major driver of municipal expenses has been education. These towns want to go the distance for our schools, and so it is only ďŹ tting that we use this education legislation to understand the impact Prop 2½ is having on their ability to help fund our schools, and then work with these communities to ďŹ nd an equitable way forward.â&#x20AC;? "Proposition 2½ caps property tax hikes unilaterally imposed by municipal oďŹ&#x192;cials at 2.5 percent, but there is no limit to how much willing municipal taxpayers can tax themselves through a Proposition 2½ operational override â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if a majority of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electorate is so inclined," said Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation (CLT), the group that created and put Prop 2½ on the 1980 ballot. "If those oďŹ&#x192;cials want to spend more, let them ask their constituents for more to spend. This is precisely why CLT proposed its property tax


THE MALDEN ADVOCATEâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;Friday, October 11, 2019

VOTED | FROM PAGE 12 by Senator Jason Lewis, the education committee and the Senate, as well as the tireless work and advocacy done by students, parents, teachers, administrators, advocates and others to bring this bill to fruition. Massachusetts made a commitment to public education in the 18th century, and today we are much closer to bringing that commitment into the 21st century to meet the needs of students today. I look forward to this bill passing the House and becoming law.â&#x20AC;? Taking into account these new investments, policy updates and the needs of all types of districts, the Student Opportunity Act creates new ways to monitor and measure progress, support eďŹ&#x20AC;ective approaches to closing opportunity gaps, and deliver results for all students. The Student Opportunity Act fully implements the recommendations of the 2015 Foundation Budget Review Commission (FBRC), ensuring that the school funding formula provides adequate and equitable funding to all districts across the state. The bill provides an estimated $1.4 billion in new Chapter 70 aid over and above inďŹ&#x201A;ation when fully implemented over the next seven years. The bill modernizes the K-12 education funding and policy landscape in four areas: â&#x20AC;˘ Estimates school districtsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; employee and retiree health care costs using up to date health insurance trend data collected by the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Group Insurance Commission (GIC). â&#x20AC;˘ Increases special education enrollment and cost assumptions to more accurately reďŹ&#x201A;ect district enrollment. â&#x20AC;˘ Increases funding for English learners (EL) that is diďŹ&#x20AC;erentiated by grade level to reďŹ&#x201A;ect the greater resources required to educate older EL students. â&#x20AC;˘ Addresses the needs of districts educating high concentrations of students from low-income

households by providing additional funding based on the share of low-income students in each district; districts educating the largest percentage of low-income students will receive an additional increment equal to 100 percent of the base foundation; â&#x20AC;˘ Returning the definition of low-income to 185% of the Federal Poverty Level, as opposed to the 133 percent level that has been used in recent years. In addition to implementing the FBRCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommended formula changes, the Student Opportunity Act provides additional state ďŹ nancial support in several categories to help public schools and communities deliver a high-quality education to every student. Those ďŹ scal supports include: â&#x20AC;˘ Increasing foundation rates for guidance and psychological services in recognition of the growing need for expanded social-emotional support and mental health services. â&#x20AC;˘ A commitment to fully funding charter school tuition reimbursement, which provides transitional aid to help districts when students leave to attend charter schools, within a three-year timetable. â&#x20AC;˘ Expanding over four years the special education circuit breaker, which reimburses districts for extraordinary special education costs, to include transportation costs in addition to instructional cost. â&#x20AC;˘ Raising, as the result of a further amendment, the annual cap on Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) spending, for construction and renovation by $200 million (from $600 million to 800 million), enabling more projects across the state to be accepted into the MSBA funding pipeline, which reimburses towns and cities for a portion of school building costs. In addition to new funding and other support, the Student Opportunity Act establishes the 21st Century Education Trust Fund to provide districts and schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s access to ďŹ&#x201A;exible funding to pursuing creative approaches to student learn-

ing and district improvement. In order to track and reproduce successful school and district-level innovations and policies, the legislation calls on school districts to develop and make publicly available plans for closing opportunity gaps. These plans will include speciďŹ c goals and metrics to track success. In addition, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Secretary of Education will collect and publish data on student preparedness in each district for post-graduate success in college and the workforce. Moreover, the Student Opportunity Act establishes a Data Advisory Commission to help improve the use of data at the state, district and school levels to inform strategies that strengthen teaching, learning and resource allocation. Following robust debate on the ďŹ&#x201A;oor, the Senate adopted several amendments to the Student Opportunity Act related to recovery high schools, the MSBA and municipal ďŹ scal challenges related to Chapter 70. To ensure that education-funding levels remain adequate, eďŹ&#x20AC;ective and equitable, the legislation also includes forward looking provisions to address additional funding challenges and policy areas. The Student Opportunity Act: â&#x20AC;˘ Directs the state Department of Revenue (DOR) and Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to analyze the method of determining required local contributions in the Chapter 70 school funding formula for the purpose of improving equity, predictability and accuracy. â&#x20AC;˘ Establishes a Rural Schools Commission to investigate the unique challenges facing rural and regional school districts with low and declining enrollment. The Commission will make recommendations for further updates to help impacted districts and communities. On October 7, the Massachusetts House of Representatives referred the Student Opportunity Act to the House Committee on Ways and Means.

Jason Lewis Ye s INCREASE FROM $30 TO $50 PER PUPIL (S 2350) Senate 11-27, rejected an amendment to a section of the bill that raises the per pupil minimum aid from $25 to $30. The amendment would raise the aid to $50 over seven years. The sponsor said the hike would only cost approximately $8 million over the seven-year period. “This increase in minimum per-pupil aid targets schools facing significant increases in their required local contribution without a corre-

sponding increase in state aid,” said the amendment’s co-sponsor Sen. Michael Moore (D-Millbury). “This amendment further adjusts the local aid funding formula to more accurately provide for school districts’ costs, and to enhance resources available to our public schools so that all districts benefit from this legislation.” Amendment opponents said the amendment is popular of course, but also regressive. They noted there are several things in the underlying bill that will assist these same communities at whom the hike is aimed. They noted the bill already hikes the minimum for $25 to $30 per pupil. And the bill also ensures that $30 is guaranteed and does not have to be fought for in each state budget. (A“Yes”vote is for the amendment.

HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK'S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature's job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed.

Flu Vaccines for Seniors That Provide Better Protection Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about the flu shots designed for older adults? I got sick last winter after getting a standard flu shot and would like to find out if the senior-specific flu vaccine is worth getting. Approaching 80 Dear Approaching, There are actually two different types of flu shots available to people age 65 and older. These FDA-approved vaccines are designed to offer extra protection beyond what a standard flu shot provides, which is important for older adults who have weaker immune defenses and have a great risk of developing dangerous flu complications. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that during the 2018-2019 flu season, up to 647,000 people were hospitalized and 61,200 died because of the flu – most of whom were seniors. You also need to be aware that these senior-specific flu shots cannot guarantee that you won’t get the flu this season, but they will lower your risk. And if you do happen to get sick, you probably won’t get as sick as you would without it. Here’s more information on the two vaccines: Fluzone High-Dose: Approved for U.S. use in 2009, the Fluzone High-Dose is a high-potency vaccine that contains four times the amount of antigen as a regular flu shot does, which creates a stronger immune response for better protection. This vaccine, according to a 2013 clinical trial, was 24 percent more effective than the regular-dose shot at preventing flu in seniors. FLUAD: Available in the U.S. since 2016, the FLUAD vaccine contains an added ingredient called adjuvant MF59 that also helps create a stronger immune response. In a 2012 Canadian observational study, FLUAD was 63 percent more effective than a regular flu shot. The CDC does not recommend one vaccination over the other, and to date, there have been no studies comparing the two vaccines. You should also know that both the Fluzone High-Dose and FLUAD can cause more of the mild side effects that can occur with a standard-dose flu shot, like pain or tenderness where you got the shot, muscle aches, headache or fatigue. And neither vaccine is recommended for seniors who are allergic to chicken eggs, or those who have had a severe reaction to a flu vaccine in the past. If you are allergic to eggs you can ask for a Flucelvax or FluBlok shot. Neither of these vaccines uses chicken eggs in their manufacturing process. All of these vaccines are covered 100 percent by Medicare Part B as long as your doctor, health clinic or pharmacy agrees not to charge you more than Medicare pays. Pneumonia Vaccines Two other important vaccinations the CDC recommends to seniors, especially this time of year, are the pneumococcal vaccines for pneumonia. Around 1 million Americans are hospitalized with pneumonia each year, and about 50,000 people die from it. The CDC recommends that all seniors, 65 or older, get two vaccinations –Prevnar 13 and Pneumovax 23. Both vaccines, which are administered just once at different times, protect against different strains of the bacteria to provide maximum protection. If you haven’t yet received any pneumococcal vaccine you should get the Prevnar 13 first, followed by Pneumovax 23 at least one year later. But if you’ve already been vaccinated with Pneumovax 23, wait at least one year before getting the Prevnar 13. Medicare Part B covers both shots, if they are taken at least one year apart. To locate a vaccination site that offers any of these shots, visit and type in your location. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
